Will my camcorder operate in the Windows Vista system?

Last Update date : 2011.01.16


You need to check the compatibility of camcorder’s USB port as the following operation systems:

  • Window Vista
  • Window 7
  • Window XP.


[Related Symptom]

Your computer fails to recognize the camcorder.



  • In the case of old models, some camcorders are compatible with only Window XP.
  • In the case of Window Vista operation, we developed another driver.



How to solve the problem:

  1. The updated USB driver was released after 2007. This can be download from our website.
  2. For camcorders which were released before 2006, Window Vista does not support.
  3. The reason why you can use any of devices is that there is no compatibility between DV port and USB port.
  4. Only USB driver has compatibility with the Window Vista operation. Therefore, we highly recommend you use the DV port or USB port.
